Pros : Great pick up, Fuel efficient

Cons : Not yet found


Look and Style : I have recently taken the test drive of newly launched Maruti Swift. On the first look, I found that Maruti has made minimal changes to its exteriors like the new car features good alloy wheels, changed grill and indicators in the room which makes it look more sporty and eye catchy now. 

Comfort : The Interiors of the new car provides the same experience as its older version. The new Maruti Swift features include a stereo with USB and audio controls on steering wheel. Pickup, In my opinion, the pickup of the car is best in its class. At the moment when I press my feet on the accelerator, the car blew me up in the air and remain so stable at the speed of 150 Km. 

Mileage:  The Mileage of the car is very impressive. The car is the most fuel-efficient car in the segment, as told by the Maruti people it offers a mileage of 22.9 kmpl on the city roads and 23.8 kmpl on the highways. 

Best Features: The handling and the performance of the car are improved than its predecessor. The suspension of the car is awesome, one can't feel the bumpy drive. Apart from handling, I am much impressed with the pickup and the mileage of the car, it's really best in its class.

Needs to improve : Since I have enjoyed its test drive only. I haven't found any flaws in it. Rest can be said when I owned this car.

Overall Experience The new Maruti Swift review reveals that the car is good and one of the best car for the small family. Its fuel efficiency is a boon where the petrol price is on a hike. If anyone is looking to buy a car one should go with new Swift. I am very much anxious to drive this car and surely go to buy it.

    first i book the car and then i took the test drive it is realy a good car but one thing which i feel is boot space which is small.there should be sterio in vdi model,overall it is good car.

  • Shekhar Salil |04 Sep,2011 03:49:26 PM

    Maruti should provide ABS & stereo to its one step lower version i.e. VXI & VDI. Boot space is remain a hurdle in Swift even in its new version, its competetor Hyudai's i20 & VW's Polo are getting weightage over it & able to push down the market share of Maruti's Swift.

    Mohit |01 Nov,2011 11:57:51 PM

    I don't think so. You can have a look over the number of bookings (50,000) before the launch of Swift. Even, there is a delay of 2 months for petrol & 4 months for diesel version, only 2% cancellation had been noted as told by Economic times. Again, these 2% include the people who had moved to Ritz. So, where is the option for i20 & polo.

  • vipul singla |04 Sep,2011 05:42:24 PM

    i think compitition of swift is with swift

  • Chauhan |06 Sep,2011 07:02:16 AM

    I would like to own a Swift variant with 6/8 Airbags, Automatic Transmission and turbo charge. It would likely be priced around 8Lakhs but would make an excellent city car. Hope there are enough buyers for it to make it a viable launch option for Suzuki India. Else buy a VW Golf A/T as and when launched.

    MOHIT |02 Nov,2011 12:01:49 AM

    Go for SX4 AT. 6/8 Airbags with AT & turbo charger will cost you more than 10 lakh & not just 8 lakh. Again, the number of buyers will be very low in this case as one can get more powerful sedan than a family small car.

  • Anilkumar |06 Sep,2011 12:34:04 PM

    i an anxious about the new swift since i am planning to buy it in next months,. I dont know when it will be delivered to me.

  • Kaili |07 Sep,2011 04:42:46 AM

    What is the waiting period to get delivery after booking? Is it available through CSD?

    Which one is better Swift ZXI ( 5.60 Lacs) or Etios Liva V(5.60 Lacs) in terms of all the features, except resale value as who cares...... Hona Jajj has also come up now in the race with 5.60 Lacs.. Plz twitt....

    KANNAN |09 Jan,2012 05:14:35 PM

    PLEASE COMPARE MARUTI SWIFT ZXI WITH ETIOS LIVA

  • N C PITTY |07 Sep,2011 09:28:44 AM

    Maruti Swift is very impressive and dashing / rich personality car in sedan segment and I suppose to buy the same, unfortunate due to Financial Problem I would go for New Maruti A-star , and I'm enjoying the samewith max. average 17Kms it will be up to 20 / ltr after 2nd servicing and Pick up has extreme

  • RITESH |07 Sep,2011 10:39:10 AM

  • varghese |07 Sep,2011 06:12:06 PM

    I have already booked Maruthi Deiesel Vdi model but, there is no stereo system why company not providing, the road price near about 642,000 charging simply they can add stereo system also.

  • jc |07 Sep,2011 06:16:22 PM

    for maruti swift every thing is right in this class but for difference it should change its seat- sponge which is like a ditch after one year compared to hondai i20 and please share some discount of 1.2 lt benefit(prev.1.3 lt petrol)to buyer.Thanks.

  • ... |07 Sep,2011 08:21:54 PM

    its the only indian car which has got sports look rather than i20 in that segment :)LOVE IT.:)

  • lokeshbakshi |07 Sep,2011 11:00:03 PM

    22.9 KMPL IN CITY ??? EITHER YOU HEARD IT WRONG OR THE MARUTI PPL ARE COMPLETELY DRUNK OR HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE. IT SHOULD BE 18 IN CITY AND 22.9 ON HIGHWAY.

  • vishva |08 Sep,2011 10:55:58 AM

    this car for middle class poor people. I'll go for some VW or Honda 3 sedan.

    Ravi |09 Sep,2011 02:48:57 PM

    This car is for the people who live there life as they want... Not for the bloody poor people coz 6.5 lac is nt small amount ohk vishva.. i hav honda city and although i hav vento.. bt it doesn't give any luxury to me.. bt new swift is like heaven.. ohk njoi....

    MOHIT |02 Nov,2011 12:09:19 AM

    Ravi is a real example of poor Indian people who doesn't want to change & will live in his village throughout his life with his 1985 model CTV & Radio.

    nitin |27 Apr,2012 05:56:54 PM

    hats off ravi...coz i'm having vdi....:))))

  • R.ANDICHAMY |08 Sep,2011 11:39:58 AM

    good looking! sterio system should be provided to the vxi model.

  • sanju |10 Sep,2011 10:37:32 AM

    Big cheating..... Car cost almost 6.5lakhs without abs & music system...only engine hvng performance....not much change/luxury in interior.... Simply charging high prices.... Better go for seden at same price band with better performance/better car... Hope they are not recovering thr japan earth quake loss frm indians.

  • raviraj |10 Sep,2011 06:54:56 PM

    i want to buy a car but am confused b/w swift petrol or diesel b'coz my running is very less approx 500km/month.pls tell which should i prefer. maintenance and service of diesel is how much...........

    Alpesh |18 Sep,2011 02:59:10 PM

    Go for diesel, bcoz petrol price now a days is 75 Rs./Ltr in my city, I have own petrol car, and every time when I go for long ride than price issue make knock in my mind so my personal suggestion to go for diesel. Now a days there is no problem in diesel engine for maintenance and service problem

    Anilkumar |07 Oct,2011 02:41:36 PM

    is there any problems regarding extra tax imposed on diesel cars.hav u heard about its detail

    MOHIT |02 Nov,2011 12:17:22 AM

    There is a difference of 1 lakh in intial. You cannot look at it but you are looking at the difference of around 2 rupees per kilometer.

    narinder |13 Mar,2012 11:24:04 PM

    go for petrol version save one lack and go for mast driving
